Dean and Kucinich
Two candidates who are fighting for something more than the nomination
Like many progressives, I've felt torn between Howard Dean's and Dennis Kucinich's respective strengths. I've resolved this conflict so far by embracing my indecision and giving money to both. Kucinich has spoken out, eloquently and thoughtfully, taking stands that challenge the conventional wisdom of our time, and point toward powerful long-term alternatives. [...]
[...] This leaves me with Dean or Kucinich. If Kucinich's role is to raise the best possible issues, even if he'll never get nominated, I can see arguments for helping him stay in the fray, particularly in states where delegates are allocated proportionately

a publication of Working Assets
where you'll always find good progressive articles and a painless way to further help progressive causes.
Working Assets has been my long distance carrier for over 12 years. It's about time I plugged them because every bit of help is needed to counter the destruction around us.
I find it very simple to tell any telemarketer for any another long distance carrier that I'm very happy with Working Assets and I have no problem throwing away the $80 check bribes attempting to make me switch.
1% of your phone charges are donated to these groups
at no charge to you. Since 1985, Working Assets members have generated more than $38 million in donations for progressive causes.
The rates are highly competitive; 7 cents a minute with a $3.95 monthly service charge and they throw in a sweet Ben and Jerry's deal for becoming a new customer along with 180 free minutes. Do it now
before you make another long distance phone call.

Institute of Medicine calls for universal health insurance
“Public opinion polls now are showing that up to 80 percent of Americans are ready for fundamental health care reform that achieves universal coverage,” he said. “The cause is attracting attention, and support is growing and it will continue to grow.”
I was down in Savannah, eatin' cream and bananas
When the heat just made me faint
I began to get cross-eyed, I thought I was lost, I'd
Begun to see things as they ain't
As the relatives gathered to see what's the matter
The doctor came to see was I dyin'
But the doctor said, "Give him jug band music
It seems to make him feel just fine"
